GOA Kids - Goats of Anarchy: Polly and Her Duck Costume: + The True Story of a Little Blind Rescue Goat by Walter Foster Jr Creative Team tells the true story of Polly, a little blind goat who was rescued by Leanne Lauricella, rescuer of farmyard animals and founder of the immensely popular Instagram account The Goats of Anarchy. Polly has some trouble adapting to her new life until her new mom gives her a warm and fuzzy duck costume, which turns out to be the perfect fit! Follow along with Polly as she finds love with her new family, gains confidence, and makes new friends. 

GOA Kids - Goats of Anarchy: The Goat with Many Coats: A True Story of a Little Goat Who Found a New Home by Leanne Lauricella tells the true story of Prospect, a small goat rescued by Leanne Lauricella, the barnyard rescuer behind the hugely popular Instagram account Goats of Anarchy. The perfect tale to inspire and delight animal lovers, The Goat with Many Coats pairs beautiful illustrations and real-life photos of Prospect the goat with a truly heartwarming tale readers of all ages will adore.

These picturebooks tell heartwarming stories from the point of view of the young rescued goats. They are both adorable and heart warming
stories about a rescued goat whose life was made better. I loved the solution of a small, chilly goat being coats and an anxious goat being a duck costume. I had no idea coats (and other accessories) were available for goats, or maybe they ones intended for kids or dogs? In both cases the artwork is very reminiscent of the classic Golden Books that I remember from my childhood, making the read even sweeter. I love the work that Lauricella does to rescue animals, and to both raise awareness and entertain us all with the stories of her rescue adventures.  These are wonderful books for animal lovers in general, animal rescuers, fans of the instagram account, and those that just love books that leave them with the warm fuzzies.
